After Anambra state governor, Charles Soludo visited Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody

 After Anambra state governor, Charles Soludo visited Nnamdi Kanu in DSS custody 


as part of his hunt for peace, Simon Ekpa who has his own armed ESN militia for which he keeps raising money and leads a group known as the 'Auto-pilot' which claims to be agitating for Biafra, made a live broadcast threatening fire and brimstone against Soludo. Less than 24 hours later (yesterday, Sunday 15th), mayhem was unleashed on major parts of Anambra state:


Onitsha federal housing, 33 and GRA came under attack by Ungun Known Men. Idemmili North L.G headquarters, PHCN and Magistrate court were set afire while a sitting house of Assembly member representing governor Soludo's own constituency was kidnapped. 


At this point, we just have to tell ourselves the truth:


What is going on in the Southeast especially Anambra state IS NO LONGER BIAFRA AGITATION. IT IS PURE TERR0RISM. And governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo MUST TREAT IT AS SUCH. Simon Ekpa is simply a job man working for some interest to destabilise Anambra state. He doesn't really care about Biafra and neither does he care about Nnamdi Kanu. He is simply using Biafra agitation as a cover to ply his ev!l trade.


Another uncomfortable truth we have to face here is, Simon Ekpa is pursuing a certain dark agenda against Anambra as a state. If you can't see this, you really haven't been paying attention. 


In the entire Southeast, there is no governor that is more Fuulani-friendly and anti-Biafra than Governor David Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi state, Simon Ekpa's home state. But how many times have you heard Ekpa attack Ebonyi state or the governor the way he does Soludo and Anambra??


As earlier as 2017, at a time most Igbo people were scared to be linked to Kanu, Soludo, as a member of a foremost Igbo Think Tank, Nzuko Umunna to which I belong, led a delegation made up of prof. Chidi Odinkalu, Tony Nnadi , Law Mefor et al to visit the IPOB leader in Kuje prison on behalf of the Think Tank group. They thereafter addressed a World Press conference categorically telling the FG that while the Igbos agree that Kanu is not above the law, they would also not sit back and watch him treated beneath the law. Since assuming office, Soludo has pandered to the agitating groups more than any other Southeast governor. He has called for Kanu's release. He has even visited him. And remember, Soludo was not in power when python dance happened so he couldn't have been a part of the governors who mismanaged the Biafra agitation


So why exactly is Simon Ekpa so fixated on Soludo and Anambra state? The answer is simple; Ekpa is not interested in Biafra or Kanu's release. In fact, he wants Kanu to r0t in jail so he could take over. For him, THIS IS PURE BUSINESS. USING NNAMDI KANU'S OWN PLAYBOOK AND BLUEPRINT of violent rhetorics, puerile propaganda, paranoia and foolhardiness of insisting on self-destructive path which majority of the mob interpret as being CONSISTENT, the Ebonyi-born finnish ex-soldier has almost succeeded with his soft coup against IPOB leadership led by Chika Edoziem and Emma Powerful. Now, majority of the mob who saw the agitation as a class warfare and would love to see everything destr0yed so we could all start afresh, now listen to him. And with his own armed ESN and a radio channel, it appears his coup is almost complete. Now he gets to collects donation directly from diasporan Igbos WHO ARE MAINLY THE ONES FUNDING THIS VIOLENCE thinking they are supporting Biafra and still collect from his real masters.


A betting man would bet that having seen Soludo's intimidating plans to transform Anambra, some outside interest may have hired Simon Ekpa to destabilise the state and make sure the governor is never allowed to focus on development. As it happens, I am a betting man. Remember, Ekpa is a politician in Finland. Matter of fact, he contested the last election in that country. After IPOB repeatedly cancelled the Monday sit-at-home and even Nnamdi Kanu himself spoke against the sit-at-home through his lawyers, it was the same Ekpa who continued to insist it must go on despite the unmentionable cost in human and material resources Igbos have suffered as a result of that moronic policy. It was Ekpa who was against the Anambra election even after IPOB saw reason and reverse its 'No-Election' order. The k!ll!ng of INEC staff member in Imo was hailed by Ekpa and his Autopilot. 


What else do we need to know that this Simon Ekpa is actually working against the collective interest of Ndigbo???

OPEN HEAVEN DEVOTIONAL DATE: MONDAY 16TH 2022 THEME: THE GOD OF ABRAHAM

 OPEN HEAVEN DEVOTIONAL

DATE:  MONDAY 16TH 2022

THEME:    THE GOD OF ABRAHAM


MEMORISE:  Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. Exodus 3:6


READ: Genesis 17:1 -8

1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.


2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.


3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,


4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.


5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.


6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.


7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.


8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.


MESSAGE

In the memory verse today, God introduced himself to Moses as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In Yorubaland where I’m from, the meaning of the name of a man gives you deep insight into the kind of person that fellow is. Thus, in order to get deep insight into who our God really is, we well be looking at this introduction more deeply for the next few days.


What is the implication of the fact that God is the God of Abraham? It means that He is a God of blessings (Genesis 12:1-3). In Genesis 24:34-35, Abraham’s servant said, “God has blessed my master greatly”. Also, the name “God of Abraham” tells us that He is a covenant-keeping God. Deuteronomy 7:9 tells us that He is a God who keeps covenants and we see that clearly in the case of Abraham because in Exodus 2:23-24, when the children of Israel were suffering in Egypt, the Bible says that God remembered His covenant with Abraham. This was even long after Abraham had died. Thus, in Exodus 3:6-12, God decided to do something about the liberation of the children of Israel from Egypt.


The God of Abraham is the God of blessings. Therefore, if you serve the God of Abraham, then you are entitled to the blessings of Abraham.


Somehow, some Christians are not enjoying these blessings. The reason may be linked to what God told Abraham in Genesis 17:1:

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.


God had made a covenant with Abraham for over 25 years, but it wasn’t until Abraham began to walk before God perfectly that it took effect. Genesis 21:5 tells us that Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born, just a little above 9 months after God told him to be perfect. Believe me honestly, if you start living holy, the blessings of Abraham will pursue and overtake you. Those ‘little sins’ you still commit will keep on hindering God’s promises from coming to pass in your life if you don’t stop them right away. Those little foxes are spoiling your vine; get rid of them now!

 

 

 KEY POINT

Sin hinders the fulfillment of God's promises in the life of His children.


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezra 8- Nehemiah 1


AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE


HYMN 21: STANDING ON THE PROMISES OF GOD

1 Standing on the promises of Christ my King,

Through eternal ages let His praises ring,

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God my Savior;

Standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.


2 Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living Word of God I shall prevail,

Standing on the promises of God.


3 Standing on the promises I now can see

Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;

Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,

Standing on the promises of God.


4 Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,

Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,

Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

Standing on the promises of God.


5 Standing on the promises I shall not fall,

List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call.

Resting in my Savior as my All in all,

Standing on the promises of God.

PETER OBI: The promising candidate and waiting game of would-be supporters

 Nigerianewslite



PETER OBI: The promising candidate and  waiting game of would-be supporters



By Chidiebere Nwobodo


"People who stand in the middle of the road get run over"

           Rush Limbaugh 


As at today, if opinion poll is conducted, Peter Obi is the leading presidential aspirant among the declared aspirants in the two major political parties. Yemi Osinbajo could have been competing with Obi on this pedestal but the vice president's ignoble role in the present administration gravely punctured his popularity. He cannot extricate himself from Buhari's colossal failure of leadership. 


Peter Obi's popularity is growing like a wildlife because some Nigerians have started accepting the hard truth—Nigeria is in dire strait; the nation is dithering and tethering towards a collapse, and only someone in Peter Obi's capacity and competence will lead the rescue mission post-2023 general elections.


A lot of enthusiastic Nigerians have expressed readiness to go the whole hog and extra mile to campaign for Peter Obi, only if PDP will give him its ticket. So, Nigerians who are of this school of thought, are sitting on the fence praying that Peter Obi emerges the PDP's flag bearer before they will go full length to market his personality and political ideology. 


Then the million-dollar question is: who is the PDP? The PDP is the leading opposition political party made up of Nigerians. The PDP is not composed of aliens. The delegates and those that influence delegates during presidential primary are not foreigners, but Nigerians as well who read our opinions cum analyses on social and mainstream media. They also have felt excruciating pain of bad governance in the last seven years, like every other Nigerian. 


In essence, if you truly believe in Peter Obi's presidency as what the nation needs today to stop progressing in error and start revolutionary recovery process, you have to get to work now. If Peter Obi's supporters can overwhelm Nigerians with the possibility and practicability of his presidency in solving myriads of woes bedeviling the nation, before the presidential primary slated for end of May, 2022, the PDP, being a party that wants to return to power, won't have option but to join the momentum.


But if you're waiting for Peter Obi to battle the moneybags, of which some of them are veterans in presidential primaries, let me bring you bad news—we will end up having uninspiring cum uninteresting candidates presented to us to choose between the devil and deep blue sea.


Nigerians who have faith in Peter Obi's philosophy of governance, must let the PDP understand that, among its aspirants as at today, only a Peter Obi can motivate Nigerians to go out in the streets to campaign for the PDP and defend its votes to return to power. Peter Obi is not popular with some of the political elite class because he does not believe in sharing government funds.


The political merchants who see every election cycle as opportunity to get slush funds, will never support a Peter Obi to clinch the ticket. To them, politics is their major means of economic survival. So, if you want a Peter Obi candidature, there is no time to stand in the middle of the road—you have to take side now, risk your desired candidate being run over. 


 It is your little support, together with that of others like you, will make the PDP choose Peter Obi as its candidate. And once he emerges as the PDP candidate, the moneybags and the political elite club will key in, because nothing will stop an idea whose time has come.


There is no time to sit on the fence. If you believe in Peter Obi and what he can do for us, our children and generations of Nigerians unborn, the defining moment of great decision has beckoned. Spread the message.

SECRETS ABOUT WOMEN

 

Nigerianewslite



SECRETS ABOUT WOMEN !

Uyah Humphrey


1, When a woman is angry, she doesn't mean over half of what she says, if possible always hug her to calm her down.


2 The most difficult time for a woman is when she is away from the man she

truly loves. She can get distressed.


3 lt takes time for a woman to trust a man, its hard to change her mind when, she does, but if you mess-up, you might just forget it.


4 A woman is such a school you will never graduate from.


5 Your wedding certificate with her is not a "driving licence", its just a "Learners permit'. Continue wooing her.


6 She can be very bitter now, and a very sweet angel later on, it all lies in your

approach. Yes treat her right always.


7 A woman hardly forget things, she remembers hurts more, avoid making

her hurt. Avoid negative words and affirm her always.


8 A woman can be highly secretive.. Most times when they prove hard to men, they go to their closet and cry to friends. Make your woman your best friend.


9 All women Love to be begged. Men often miss out on this. Yes please handle them like babies sometime its all they want.


10 All women have a unique character like salt, their presence might not be

noticed but their absence makes all things tasteless.


11 If  she loves you she can do everything you ask of her as far as it makes u happy, so never force her to love you.


12 If you don't take care of her, she will find someone who will. They are always there only that she chose you.


13 If a woman truly loves you, even to ask money from you she will be shy, but as a gentleman don't wait to be asked and most especially if she loves you she can never leave you to spend unnecessarily.. thats what makes them special..


If you have a good woman in your life, don't take her for granted. They areexpensive jewelry.

Senator Ekwunife canvasses support for Gov. Soludo for improved security

 Senator Ekwunife canvasses support for Gov. Soludo for improved security





In a bid to find a permanent solution to the lingering security challenges facing the state, the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Iyom Uche Ekwunife, has called on stakeholders to rally round the governor of Anambra state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo in his efforts towards tackling insecurity in the state.


Senator Ekwunife, who made the call during a one-day peace building and security dialogue session on Saturday in Awka, congratulated the governor for the initiative, emphasizing that security was everyone’s responsibility.

She charged the residents of the state to be vigilant, adopt the “see something say something” approach and report any suspicious activity in their neighbourhoods to the appropriate quarters.


Speaking further, the federal lawmaker urged the government to invest in intelligence gathering through the use of technology, upgrade the equipment of the security operatives and improve their welfare.


According to the Senator, a seamless and secured information platform for the people to feel protected to share timely security information should be enabled by the state


While highlighting poor parenting as one of the major sources of insecurity, Senator Ekwunife, called on parents to rise to the occasion in ensuring that their children and wards were trained under the best moral upbringing.


She advised the State House of Assembly to enact a law for the State Orientation Agency to educate the public on the right behavioural attitude to help curb the menace of insecurity.


In his speech, Governor Soludo commended the stakeholders and everyone for their presence, noting that sustained collaboration, the state would be peaceful and prosperous

FROM THE STABLE OF AYO FAYOSE; ON PETER OBI

 Nigerianewslite



FROM THE STABLE OF AYO FAYOSE; ON PETER OBI




I love Igbos but I have to tell them the truth because I love them.


It is now a law to transmit votes electronically, that means rigging of elections has been reduced drastically.


Igbos are only tribe that have 99% of voters in the South East and second highest voters in other regions in Nigeria.


In the South West, after Yoruba votes, Igbo votes come second. Lagos has the highest number of voters in Nigeria and Igbos are competing with Yorubas in voting power in Lagos.


In the South South, we have indigenous Igbos in the South South and all the major cities in the South South are occupied by Igbos. Go to Port Harcourt you will understand what I mean.


In the North Central, go to Jos and all the state capital in the North Central, Igbos are the second largest population after the indigenous people.


In the North West, go to Kano and Kaduna and you will know that Igbos are the second largest population after indigenous people.


In the North East, go to Maidugri and all the state capitals, Igbos are the second largest tribe after the indigenous people.


Go to federal capital territory Abuja, Igbos are the largest population in Abuja today.


If Igbos truly want to determine who will rule this country today, they will but they only sit back and lament without any action.


Peter Obi is the most qualified candidate to rule this country but Igbos are not with their voters card.


Go and get your PVC today!!!
